    What did you do to your car today?

    Rebuilt the Edelbrock 1405 carb. The float valves were waaaay off. Put it on, and the car runs like a beast now. Just what it needed :) Hopefully this will solve my start-up issue. It was like the car wasn't getting fuel unless I really pumped the accelerator. Took it for a ride and everything...

    Washed

    Def worth more than that. Looks really nice, wax will make it look even better. After a nice clay barring, polishing, and wax, you will have a mirror finish. Best thing in the world. Your car reminds me so much of mine when I first got it. Mine is 5M- Medium Copper, instead of medium brown. It...

    Another Dead Starter- Not the Starter After all

    Nuts under the turn signal plate? That must be the metal part of the steering column I am looking at. Let me go see right now. Just got done moving the car and giving it a nice soapy wash. Also took off the front lic plate. I need it in my state but I see so many people that drive without one...

    Another Dead Starter- Not the Starter After all

    Hey, your information was great. This starter is super heavy. The first time I held one from this car I was in disbelief of how heavy it was. I think Ill pick up a new starter sometime this season. As of right now, I think I am going to focus on why my car takes forever to actually get going...

    Another Dead Starter- Not the Starter After all

    So, I went outside and went to turn the car on in park. It worked. You know how the steering column has a "rotating" piece of metal that can turn a little to the left and right? When I turn it all the way to the left my shifter moves forward a bit and I can start the car in park. So it just...

    It's alive!!!

    Wow! I didn't even notice the dome light in that picture. I really thought it was just posters and stuff on your wall. That is so creative! Welcome from Rhode Island

    Another Dead Starter- Not the Starter After all

    Hey all!! I think I have great news! I put the car in neutral and went to crank it over. Car cranked over and came to life this morning. SO, problem is most likely the neutral safety switch on the tranny right? Fairly easy to replace so long as you can get the car jacked up high enough right...

    Another Dead Starter- Not the Starter After all

    Thank Paul! It sucks because it is finally nice outside for car rides. Not too hot, and dry clean streets. Yet my car is in my yard with a cover on it. Oh yea, just found a nice rip in this car custom cover that cost me over $400. I cant even remember what site I bought it from to replace it. :(

    Another Dead Starter- Not the Starter After all

    Are you talking about the two wires that push on the two small front solenoid "bolts"? Let me reverse those and see if that gets me anywhere. However, the problem existed before I even touched the old solenoid or wires. So they were in the right way before.

    Another Dead Starter- Not the Starter After all

    Sorry I was mistaken. Lights work with the key in and the dome light works when I open my car door. Horn works (not sure if that matters, electrical stuff isn't my thing). -My alternator light does go on when the key is in the "on" position. -New solenoid -New fuse linkage -New battery...

    Another Dead Starter- Not the Starter After all

    Oh! almost forgot.. The headlights will not turn on either, even with the key turned in the on position. Not sure if that can help pinpoint my problem? Any more ideas?

    Another Dead Starter- Not the Starter After all

    Okay, its not the starter. The car turns over when I make a connection between the positive and negative sides of the solenoid. All the fuses are good. My dad suspects it has something to do with my ignition since all the wires are getting juice. We are going to take the steering wheel assembly...

    Another Dead Starter- Not the Starter After all

    Okay. So Ill check all connections again and give them all a good scrubbing with a brass brush. I believe most of the wiring in the engine bay is all original stuff. Maybe I have a burnt wire somewhere. So far I know it has something to do with my starter. Ill check it all tomorrow after class...

    Another Dead Starter- Not the Starter After all

    Car: 73' 302 4bbl automatic Early this spring I noticed my car would take forever to crank over. The starteR would keep spinning but the carburetor was having trouble getting fuel. Fixed that with a carb rebuild, but noticed the starter was having trouble after that. Brought the battery in and...

    Issues starting and accelerating

    I had a similar issue when I first got my mustang. Don and Will got you covered, it does sound like a fuel problem. I checked my fuel lines, replaced the filter and did a rebuild on the carb since it was long due for it anyway. I need to replace my fuel tank too, I think it might be sending junk...

    Friend's Nice Mopar

    Wow, there is something about the color of this car.. It is just so unique. I have always liked molars, and a charger has been on my list of dream cars for a long time. I will get one some day, maybe within the next twenty years lol.

    73' Mach 1 $7000. 351

    I wish I could go but I am in school and all and I am also in RI. HOWEVER, I def want to hear what you think about it if you are really going to look at it. I am in no situation where I should buy another mustang, but I knew this looked decent from the pictures. I see cars in much worse shape...

    73' Mach 1 $7000. 351

    Lmao, if I were seriously interested in this car I would probably have to get one of you guys to go with me. You guys all know so much about these cars, I still have A LOT of learning to do. I just figured it could be a pretty darn good buy. Wish there were many more pics but thats what you...
